Girls of AR & VR - IRL

Hello friends! I have been hoarding content from you for months and today I am happy to finally announce a special mini-series as part of #WholeRoleModels: Girls Behind VR & AR - IRL!

Ok, that's a lot of acronyms. Some terminology:

  • AR = Augmented Reality
  • VR = Virtual Reality
  • IRL = In Real Life (internet slang)

That's right. We're talking about girls behind augmented and virtual reality, in real life. Are you scared yet?

Before you start doubting yourself and thinking this topic will be too tech heavy for you to follow, remember I’m picking bad ass well-rounded women who are able to explain things in terms we can all understand, and there’s a reason I - as your curator - picked them. They’re all doing something creative, crazy, and surprising that we need to know more about. Not to mention this is an industry without limits that is already changing the way we spend our time and starving for more women!

What to expect

These 5 girls are about to dominate my blog for the next couple of months:

More work from Angela Haddad's @onethirdblue. Again, I can't. You're going to find out what these beautiful pieces of art have to do with VR! Hold tight.

These girls are young, and they're crushing it. In an industry many thought was never possible and some of us still know nothing about. We're about to find out all about what in the world augmented and virtual reality are, what the difference is between the terms, what these women do, and what all they balance alongside their work. Each woman's career situation and balancing act is different. The one thing all of these girls have in common is passion. I know you will hear that through their interviews! 

We're going to learn wildly different things from each of these women about life and work, then I'll be wrapping up the mini-series with lessons learned. I hope you enjoy this mini series as much as I have enjoyed preparing it for you! If you're following along and have something to say or share related to the series, don't forget to use the official mini series hashtag on Instagram: #ARVRIRL (Sorry not sorry, I had to be super trolly with this one).

This series is actually going to take a couple of months yet still be pretty fast paced, because I'm breaking the content up into digestible chunks and giving each woman a chance to shine. You'll meet our first #ARVRIRL #WholeRoleModel next week. Here's how you can make sure not to miss any new content!
